Canes Acquire Rob Hennigar from Islanders

RALEIGH, NC—Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired center Rob Hennigar from the New York Islanders in exchange for center Bobby Hughes. Completion of the trade is subject to a physical of Hughes by 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Hennigar, 26, completed his first season of professional hockey in 2008-09, splitting the season between the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL) and the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL. In 34 regular-season games with Bridgeport, Hennigar (5’11”, 194 lbs.) scored three goals and earned 10 assists (13 points). The St. Catharine’s, Ont., native led Utah in assists (44), points (59) and plus/minus (+24) in 2008-09, despite playing in just 38 ECHL regular-season games with the Grizzlies. He also competed in all four of Bridgeport’s postseason games, scoring one goal.

Prior to turning professional, Hennigar spent four seasons with the University of New Brunswick Reds of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference in Canada. He collected many accolades during his collegiate career, including the 2007-08 Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) player of the year award. Hennigar spent four seasons with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) from 2000-04, prior to his four years at New Brunswick.
